After 3rd outage Danville Utilities to inspect substation transformers
USA, Virginia: Danville Utilities will assess its substation transformers later this year after the third River District outage linked to the Bridge Street Substation in Danville, Virginia took place in 18 months.
“All existing substation transformers will be inspected and ranked based on failure possibility,” said Jason Grey, Danville Utilities Director, adding that “future transformer replacements will be based on this study,” reports GoDanRiver.
Transformers showing the lowest remaining useful life will be replaced first, Grey added.
The Bridge Street substation was installed in 1975.
